Here’s an interesting data point for those watching Microsoft’s effort to make it in the world of search.

According to ad network Chitika, via Search Engine Land, Bing is the second most popular search engine, beating Yahoo for the position.

Chitika works with 80,000 sites, mostly in North America, and tracks the referrals from search engines sent to its partners.
